    Time to let her go, I've owner her for 30 years maybe someone else can admire her for a while. For Sale - Original factory built Pat Bilbow, 1959 Lyndwood "Eliminator II" dragster, Fully restored ,98" wb, blown-injected SBC. Has all the correct Lyndwood bells and whistles accept a Lyndwood steering wheel. Found locally in PA in 1989 in a scrap yard, Chassis restoration done & restored as a injected 331 sbc ,C/D circa 1962 and ran in nostalgia exhibition till '95. Chassis was identified as the Solomon & Rorres A/D out of Havertown Pa in late '99. Blown set up was added in 2006 (non functional) to mimic the look as a suitable (affordable) blown 394 olds was not available at that time. a new sbc was built for the new re-freshened gmc blower set up in 2012 in place of the 331.
    355 ci, 010 4 bolt main block,arp main studs, resized "Pink" rods w/arp bolts, blower pistons, steel crank cut .010/.010,clevite bearings, moly rings, ARP head bolts,Fuelie heads, milled .010, 2.02/1.60 sst valves, 3 angle valve job, Hydraulic blower cam.lifters & springs (for "cackle" use) roller tipped steel rockers (to clear finned valve cover) guide plates,hardened push rods, HV oil pump, early corvette oil pan, hilborn gear drive, timing cover, fuel pump, pump extension,shut off valve, 2" - 1.2 pitch drive set up,hilborn 2 port injector and scoop (new but needs re configuring),vertex magneto (may need freshening) new headers, new fuel lines. injector barrel valve/injectors & bypass pill is set up for Cackle/display running by hilborn.

    Will need some mechanical TLC, I never finished configuring the bell crank to the injectors, Mag may need to be sent out and freshened (last done in 1990), new engine/blower have not been fired (long story) but were turned over 2-3 times a year till it went on display. has been on display for a while, last raced was as a C/D injected sbc at E-town '95.
